Just had to update you with this amazing cake that Mum made for me following the pool catastrophe!! I had to don a wetsuit and get into the 8 water to find the leak.
Very happy to report that the pool is staying full and is now at 27. Hallelujah!! Very Happy

Update:

Email from Certikin to my supplier: "......As there is no time to repair and this has been patched up, as a gesture of goodwill I will agree to issue you a credit of 10% of the nett price for the Liner.
A credit of 75.05 Nett will be raised today for you."

We paid 1500 for it - not that that's really relevant. But I think 75 is a paltry sum. I've told the supplier that I don't have any confidence now in the life of the liner (that seam in particular) and have asked that they pay for it to be professionally repaired, if such a thing exists. Plus also compensation for the lost water, stress and time.

Any thoughts anyone?

Um shouldn't 10% of 1500 be 150?

That'll be 10% of what my supplier paid, not a bad little profit eh?

He's speaking to Certikin this morning so we'll see what they've got to say, I've rejected the 75!

On the face of it your supplier could buy you another brand new liner and, having given it to you, would still have a (small) profit of 75.
